    Madonna Evita — Part 1 текст песни

    Evita — Part 1

    1. A CINEMA IN BUENOS AIRES, 26 JULY 1952

    (An audience is watching a movie. Suddenly the film stops. The people in the cinema begin to protest but are silenced by an announcement)

    THE VOICE OF THE SECRETARY OF THE PRESS

    It is my sad duty to inform you that Eva Peron, spiritual leader of the nation, entered immortality at 8.25 this evening.

    2. REQUIEM FOR EVITA

    (EVA’s funeral. CHE is the only non-participant. He moves through the mourners, apparently unseen.)

    CROWD

    Requiem aeternum

    dona Evita

    Requiem Evita

    Evita

    Evita

    3. OH WHAT A CIRCUS

    CHE

    Oh what a circus!

    Oh what a show!

    Argentina has gone to town

    Over the death of an actress called Eva Peron

    We’ve all gone crazy

    Mourning all day and mourning all night

    Falling over ourselves to get all

    Of the misery right

    Oh what an exit! That’s how to go!

    When they’re ringing your curtain down

    Demand to be buried like Eva Peron

    It’s quite a sunset

    And good for the country in a roundabout way

    We’ve made the front page of all the world’s papers today

    But who is this Santa Evita?

    Why all this howling hysterical sorrow?

    What kind of goddess has lived among us?

    How will we ever get by without her?

    She had her moments—she had some style

    The best show in town was the crowd

    Outside the Casa Rosada crying, «Eva Peron»

    But that’s all gone now

    As soon as the smoke from the funeral clears

    We’re all going to see and how she did nothing for years!

    CROWD

    Salve regina mater misericordiae

    Vita dulcedo et spes nostra

    Salve salve regina

    Ad te clamamus exules filii Eva

    Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes

    O clemens o pia

    CHE

    You let down your people Evita

    You were supposed to have been immortal

    That’s all they wanted

    Not much to ask for

    But in the end you could not deliver

    Sing you fools! But you got it wrong

    Enjoy your prayers because you haven’t got long

    Your queen is dead, your king is through

    She’s not coming back to you

    Show business kept us all alive

    Since 17 October 1945

    But the star has gone, the glamour’s worn thin

    That’s a pretty bad state for a state to be in

    Instead of government we had a stage

    Instead of ideas a prima donna’s rage

    Instead of help we were given a crowd

    She didn’t say much but she said it loud

    Sing you fools? But you got it wrong

    Enjoy your prayers because you haven’t got long

    Your queen is dead, your king is through

    She’s not coming back to you

    CROWD

    Salve regina mater misericordiae

    Vita dulcedo et spes nostra

    Salve salve regina Peron

    Ad te clamamus exules filii Eva

    Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes

    O clemens o pia

    EVA

    Don’t cry for me Argentina

    For I am ordinary, unimportant

    And undeserving of such attention

    Unless we all are—I think we all are

    So share my glory, so share my coffin

    So share my glory, so share my coffin

    CHE

    It’s our funeral too

    4. ON THIS NIGHT OF A THOUSAND STARS (Flashback to 1934 and to a nightclub in Junin, EVA’s home town. EVA DUARTE is fifteen. The cabaret is nearly over. MAGALDI is singing with great gusto.)

    CHE

    Now Eva Peron had every disadvantage you need if

    You’re going to succeed. No money, no class, no father,

    No bright lights—there was nowhere she’d been at the age Of fifteen, as this tango singer found out.

    Agustin Magaldi—who has the distinction of being the First man to be of use to Eva Duarte.

    MAGALDI

    On this night of a thousand stars

    Let me take you to heaven’s door

    Where the music of love’s guitars

    Plays for evermore!

    In the glow of those twinkling lights

    We shall love through eternity

    On this night in a million nights

    Fly away with me!

    I never dreamed that a kiss could be as sweet as this

    —now I know that it can

    I used to wander alone without a love of my own

    I was a desperate man

    But all my grief disappeared and all the sorrow I feared

    Wasn’t there anymore

    On that magical day when you first came my way

    Mi Amor!

    On this night… On this night… On this night of a thousand stars

    Let me take you to heaven’s door

    Where the music of love’s guitars

    Plays for evermore!

    5.EVA AND MAGALDI / EVA BEWARE OF THE CITY (MAGALDI joins EVA and her family—mother, 3 sisters, brother—at their table. CHE is loitering nearby at the bar.)

    EVA

    To think that a man, as famous as you are, could love a Poor little nothing like me!

    I want to be a part of B.A.—Buenos Aires—Big Apple!

    EVA and FAMILY

    She wants to be a part of B.A.—Buenos Aires—Big Apple!

    CHE

    Just listen to that! They’re onto you Magaldi! I’d get out

    While you can

    EVA

    It’s happened at last—I’m starting to get started—I’m moving out with my man

    MAGALDI

    Now Eva don’t get carried away-

    EVA

    Monotony past—suburbia departed—who could ever be Fond of the back of beyond?

    MAGALDI

    Don’t hear words that I didn’t say

    EVA’s FAMILY

    What’s that? You’d desert the girl you love?

    MAGALDI

    The girl I love? What are you talking about?

    EVA’s FAMILY

    She really brightened up your out of town engagement,

    She gave you all she had—she wasn’t in your contract

    —you must be quite relieved that no-one’s told the papers

    —so far-

    EVA

    I want to be a part of B.A.—Buenos Aires—Big Apple!

    Would I have done what I did if I hadn’t thought, if I Hadn’t known, we would stay together?

    CHE

    Seems to me there’s no point in resisting, she’s made up her mind, you’ve no choice.

    Why don’t you be the man who discovered her?

    You’ll never be remembered for your voice.

    MAGALDI

    The city can be paradise for those who have the cash, the class and the connections—what you need to make a splash.

    The likes of you get swept up in the morning with the trash—if you were rich or middle class-

    EVA

    Screw the middle classes! I will never accept them!

    My father’s Other family were middle class and we were kept out of Sight, hidden from view, at his funeral!

    DESK CLERK

    Do all your one night stands give you this trouble?

    MAGALDI

    Eva, beware of the city It’s hungry and cold, can’t be controlled, it is mad

    Those who are fools are swallowed up whole

    And those who are not become

    What they should not become

    Changed—in short they go bad

    EVA

    Bad is good for me—I’m bored, so clean and so ignored

    I’ve only been predictable—respectable!

    Birds fly out of here so why oh why oh why the hell can’t I I only want variety—of society!

    I want to be a part of B.A.—Buenos Aires—Big Apple!

    EVA and FAMILY

    She wants to be a part of B.A.—Buenos Aires—Big Apple!

    MAGALDI

    Five years from now I shall come back

    And finally say, you have your way—come to town

    But you’ll look at me with a foreigner’s eyes

    The magical city a

    Younger girl’s city, a Fantasy long since put down

    EVA

    All you’ve done to me—was that a young girl’s fantasy?

    I played your city games alright—didn’t I?

    I already know what cooks, how the dirty city feels and looks

    I tasted it last night, didn’t I?

    I’m going to be a part of B.A.—Buenos Aires—Big Apple!

    EVA and FAMILY

    She’s going to be a part of B.A.—Buenos Aires—Big Apple!

    MAGALDI

    Eva beware your ambition

    It’s hungry and cold, can’t be controlled, will run wild

    This in a man is danger enough

    But you are a woman, not

    Even a woman, not

    Very much more than a child and whatever you say

    I’ll not steal you away!

    6. BUENOS AIRES (EVA and MAGALDI arrive in Buenos Aires)

    EVA

    What’s new Buenos Aires?

    I’m new—I want to say I’m just a little stuck on you

    You’ll be on me too!

    I get out here Buenos Aires

    Stand back—you ought to know what’cha gonna get in me

    Just a little touch of star quality!

    Don’t hold back you are certain to impress

    Hello Buenos Aires!

    We’ll put on a show!

    Because you ought to know what’cha gonna get in me

    Just a little touch of star quality!

    And if ever I go too far

    And if I need a moment’s rest

    Real eiderdown—and silence

    But you’re flesh, you are meat, you shall have every breath in my body

    7. ANOTHER SUITCASE IN ANOTHER HALL

    EVA

    I don’t expect my love affairs to last for long

    Never fool myself that my dreams will come true

    Being used to trouble I anticipate it

    But all the same I hate it—wouldn’t you?

    So what happens now?

    CHE

    Another suitcase in another hall

    EVA

    So what happens now?

    CHE

    Take your picture off another wall

    EVA

    Where am I going to?

    CHE

    You’ll get by, you always have before

    EVA

    Where am I going to?

    Time and time again I’ve said that I don’t care

    That I’m immune to gloom, that I’m hard through and through

    But every time it matters all my words desert me

    So anyone can hurt me—and they do

    So what happens now?

    CHE

    Another suitcase in another hall

    EVA

    So what happens now?

    CHE

    Take your picture off another wall

    EVA

    Where am I going to?

    CHE You’ll get by you always have before

    EVA

    Where am I going go?

    Call in three months time and I’ll be fine I know

    Well maybe not that fine, but I’ll survive anyhow

    I won’t recall the names and places of each sad occasion

    But that’s no consolation—here and now

    So what happens now?

    CHE

    Another suitcase in another hall

    EVA

    So what happens now?

    CHE

    Take your picture off another wall

    EVA

    Where am I going to?

    CHE

    You’ll get by, you always have before

    EVA

    Where am I going to?

    CHE

    Don’t ask anymore
